The only way someone could see you if you have an aft balcony cabin is if you are right up against the railing. If you step back it is private. Unless your neighbor peeks around the partition! I was just on the Legend 10 days ago with a wrap around Cat. 11 suite with balcony and it was very private for a good portion of it. The one thing I must say is it was like an oven. There was hardly any breeze and after about 15 minutes out there sunbathing I could not stand it. I had to go in. Sure different than on deck where the wind is so strong you cant even feel the sun!
